COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hi.P.A. is a medium-bodied groove with a fresh and fruitful nose of tympanic temptation. It begins and ends with a big hop bite that is itself forever balanced on the brink by a steady rhythm of malt. Dry-hopped for extra quenching in the face of heat and beat, it’s an ideal accompaniment to chilling out, turning inward or sailing onward through the music of the night toward the dawn of the mind. It’s the liquid way to say be here now lest you never come this way again.

Lubiere (12878) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2007
A hazy golden IPA with a thick creamy egg white head. Aroma is pungeant and pleasant, pinhey, and hoppy, with definite maltiness, all caramelly.In mouth, a biscuiity malt is well complemented by nice floral hops, restrained but sustained, and light grapefruit. An ideal IPA. Bought at CJs in Potsdam.

BeerandBlues2 (12101) - Escondido, California, USA - APR 9, 2009
Bottle. Pours excellent, a huge, rocky, white head, lasting with excellent lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (grain, hay, meal, cereal), heavy hops (perfume, flowers, citrus), heavy yeast (sweat, earth) with notes of peach flesh and pear. Light bodied, thin texture, average carbonation, and a bitter finish. Short duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness.

Bov (11965) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 21, 2011
from Mondial de la Bière, Strasbourg - cloudy dark blond colour with a little persistent white foam, nice lacework; a fair hoppy aroma of apricot and litchies; light notes of candi sugar; full-bodied and sticky palate, astringent and very tasty, a solid bitterness, very fruity hoppy finish (apricot, oranges and quinces) - very nice!

Drake (11781) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 28, 2008
Bottle. Pours amber with a medium sized head. Very nice lacing. Mild hops in the aroma. Hops take a while to materialize out of the sweet goopy malty mess. This one is muddled and all off-kilter. Too bad.

hopdog (11527) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2004
Poured a medium to darker, hazy orange/amber color with an avearged sized white head. Hoppy aromas and tastes of grapefruit, pine and oranges. Not too bitter. Watery body. A little thin as weak for a top quality IPA (although it wasn’t bad).

Dogbrick (11480) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2003
Thanks to VENOM for this unique IPA. The bottle has an interesting trippy feel. Pours a bright clear orange color with a very thin off-white head. Thin and quick lacing. Aroma is mostly hops and fruit, along with something that smelled like Starburst candy. Crisp and clean and a nice level of hops in the flavor, but every once in awhile a strange cotton candy-like flavor would seep through. Still it is very drinkable and a decent IPA. I look forward to trying more offerings from this brewer.
